Happy New Year!
Yep, we made it to the new year. It’s about time! I’m ready to put 2021 in the rear view mirror and put some distance between me and last year. No matter how tough this new year might be, surely it can’t be as tough as last year, right?
I don’t know about that!
Oh well, we’ll just take whatever comes our way over the next 12 months in stride. That’s what Americans always do. And, again, while we’re doing that, we’ll keep an ever-watchful eye on the important matters of the day — every day. And we’ll each week bring you the biggest stories of each week in our Saturday Bullet Points.
Let’s get started with 2022 and our Saturday Bullet Points right now!
- It’s going to surprise many that our very first Bullet Point story of the new year is one that involves former President Donald Trump — and it’s a good story! Do you remember that Mr. Trump put a policy in place that would put an end to those surprise medical bills patients get after receiving medical treatments? He did that. And guess what: that policy goes into effect in a few days. (Let’s hope Joe Biden doesn’t cancel THIS ONE of Trump’s policies!) For complete details, click on this link:
- I often wonder just how much of the Biden game-plan for the nation with which the members of his administration disagree. You know there are going to be some. Biden’s Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, has a habit of opening his mouth about policy matters and gets caught spouting information that runs counter to the politically correct Biden policy-of-the-day. This past week was no different: Klain got busted! He dared to compare the Omicron variant to cold and flu! For complete details, click on this link:
- Everyone knows that Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul have become filthy rich from her status in Congress. They’ve found themselves in trouble with the federal government for taking advantage of insider information and have made tens of millions of dollars taking advantage of information and opportunities that come directly from her political position. Just two weeks ago, we reported another such opportunity was taken by the Pelosi duo in a very public way. And, once again, members of Congress jumped all over the House Speaker for doing so. But, guess what: they did it again! And they were caught. Do you think anything will happen to them? For complete details, click on this link:
- Everyone seems to have opinions about everything that happens in government in Washington D.C. And the plethora of news coverage of all-things D.C. give ample opportunity for speculation galore. Lately, the political “experts” are marching out new polls about every aspect of federal governing, who is going to survive, who will not be re-elected, and which political party will be in control of Congress after the upcoming midterm elections. Cook Political Report has completed their latest sampling of opinions among the American voters and have THE answer of which political party will be in control of both houses of Congress following November’s election.

- Speaking of upcoming political matters, guess who has decided to come out of her cave and begin pontificating once again about all-things political? Hillary Clinton. This past week the former U.S. Senator, Secretary of State, and twice-failed presidential candidate decided to go after Joe Biden. She launched a blistering attack against this President that shocked a bunch of Democrats. Do you think Hillary is planning another run at the White House? If that’s not her plan, it’s curious that she would attack her longtime friend and ally like she did. For complete details, click on this link:
- 2021 saw Dr. Anthony Fauci on television shows of some kind daily, and often multiple times a day. Why? He was introduced to the American people in 2020 as THE foremost expert on everything to do with COVID-19. Although he has rescinded numerous “facts” and “instructions” given to Americans about what to do and not do regarding COVID-19, the Director of the NIAID has NEVER apologized for any of his dozens of errors in his edicts for us during the pandemic. Hold on: that has changed! Fauci admitted that many of the children now hospitalized are NOT in hospitals because of their being infected by COVID-19. I never thought we’d see this day, but it’s here. For complete details, click on this link:
- Some “non-Fauci” COVID experts have weighed in on possible COVID boosters in our future. They announced on Friday that it may not be necessary for any future boosters and that anymore than those already prescribed may actually lead to serious dangers. Further, they gave their formal consent that the belief that the Omicron variant may actually be the natural immunity trigger doctors have been waiting for. For complete details, click on this link:
- Our political leaders seemed to lather when the Omicron variant was announced to have arrived in our country. They immediately began preparations to implement some more egregious lockdowns and cancellations in anticipation of Omicron’s dangerous actions. Schools began closing, football bowl games were “adjusted” while several were actually cancelled. Christmas gathering, we were warned, would “probably” resulted in a huge spike in Omicron infections. While Omicron infections have actually spiked, guess what: Omicron is more transmissible than earlier variants but its effects on humans is minimal! That’s good news. And after the usual CDC scare tactics, the agency this past week actually acknowledged they were wrong about their instructions to us for facing Omicron. For complete details, click on this link:
- These Biden vaccine mandates are getting out of hand. I don’t remember any policies from any other president that brought so much consternation from the American people. Court tests of each of these mandates are almost too many to count. And now we learn that 170 members of Congress are demanding Biden’s OSHA vaccine mandate has gotta go! For complete details, click on this link:
- It’s not Critical Race Theory…but it’s racist. It’s hard to believe that New York’s State Health Department announced it is prioritizing one of its most critical health policies against white people in favor of people of color! Think about this: a state government agency has made a policy regarding COVID-19 treatment and make no effort to hide a racist restriction the state has implemented. for complete details, click on this link:
- Every American has watched the vaccine mandate play out regarding the U.S. military. It is abundantly clear that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s mandate that ALL members of the U.S. Military be vaccinated has already begun to weaken America’s military. Each Branch has its own restrictions and timelines for service members to be vaccinated. And numerous service members have already been kicked out for refusing vaccinations. 206 in the U.S. Marine Corp got the boot in the last few days. Will this ever stop?
